Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing fine.  I wanted to send a short note to let you know that the new Through our Hands Magazine is out.  Go to: www.throughourhands.co.uk

through our handsHere’s what they have to say:

We are delighted to announce that bestselling author Linda Seward is joining our regular contributors and in this edition she talks to Susan Hotchkis about her work and inspiration. The fabulous Terry Grant, is also joining us and she explains how nearly drowning can enhance your sketchbook work. They join our regular authors, Helen Cobby who tells us about pin cushions, and Margaret Cooter who investigates Georgie Meadows and her stitched drawings.

Of course, all your regular favourite features are included. Linda and Laura discuss “Déjà vu” or the thorny issue of copying work, on Soapbox. Michala Gyetvai is our marooned guest artist on the Desert Island, and she tells us what’s on her iPod and who’d she’d like to invite to dinner. We have articles by Jette Clover who tells us about her Memories Through Stamps; Linda Barlow shares her new work which will premiere at Festival of Quilts this year; Clare Smith explains her Vertical Performance Dyeing, and we have the final instalment of Dijanne Cevaal’s travels.

And if all that isn’t enough, we also have features on some familiar artists, and introduce some new ones to you, including Viv Sliwka and Jennifer Moss. We also have your work in our new Show and Tell section, featuring a wonderful selection of your beautiful pieces.

Love Annabel, Laura and Linda

I have taken a quick look at the magazine, and as usual it’s full of wonderful information. I hope you enjoy it.
